SIG Alert!

40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."

Day 25 – John 16.24, 26-27: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.  Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete.  In that day you will ask in my name.  I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.  No, the Father himself loves you.  Jude 20-21: Pray in the Holy Spirit.  Keep yourselves in God’s love.

  1. Pray that we will understand that as we are one with Christ through the Holy Spirit, we can pray in His name; we can pray in the Spirit of Christ.
  2. Pray for Christ New Testament Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. John Henderson, his wife Dorselene and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for New St. Paul Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Lorenzo Edwards, his wife and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Torrance, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that God will use us as His servants, recognizing all the opportunities He places before us to serve Him, and winning the lost to faith in Jesus Christ.

 

 

Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

The greatest proof of Christianity for others is not how a man can logically analyze his reasons for believing, but how far in practice he will stake his life on his belief.  –T. S. Eliot

The 3.5 billion unreached people on earth would form a single file line that would stretch around the equator 25 times!  Can you picture 25 lines of Christless people, trampling endlessly toward hell?  Let that vision stay with you day and night.  –Larry Stockstill

As a large fire begins with kindling of small twigs and branches, even so a large revival is preceded by the prayers of a few hidden seemingly insignificant souls.  –Gary Amirault

When I didn’t get what I thought I wanted, God always has given me something better.  That’s just who He is.  —Charles F. Stanley

People think I’m disciplined.  It is not discipline.  It is devotion.  There is a great difference.  —Luciano Pavarotti

Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle. —Phillips Brooks

If you are prepared, you will be confident, and you will do the job.  –Tom Landry

Play for your own self-respect and the respect of your teammates.  –Dan McGugin

I’ve always felt that a champion shouldn’t let things like questionable line calls bother her.  –Chris Evert

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily.  —Zig Ziglar

Don't find fault, find a remedy. Anybody can complain.  —Henry Ford

Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent of how I react to it.—John Maxwell

I want to be in the 20% that makes 80% of the difference.  --Richard Graham

Adoption is when a child grows in its Mommy’s heart instead of her tummy.  --unknown.  Sounds like when God adopts us as His children, too.  --Richard Graham

Every organization “reeks” of its leadership, whomever the leadership is.  The next leadership will change many things when they arrive, perhaps everything, and it will have a fresh “reek.”  The same is true of NAMB, CSBC, LBHA, and every church and her leadership.  But God has chosen us, to work through us, to reach the lost.  That is why it is so important we “reek” of Jesus Christ!  The only way to “reek” of Jesus is to walk with Him exclusively.  --Richard Graham

If you can't control your anger, you are as helpless as a city without walls waiting to be attacked.  --The Book of Proverbs, The Bible

A mediocre person tells. A good person explains. A superior person demonstrates. A great person inspires others to see for themselves.  --Harvey Mackay

Freedom, privileges, options, must constantly be exercised, even at the risk of inconvenience.  --Jack Vance

The North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention (NAMB) and HELPLINK make the documents related to the following issues available as general informational help to anyone who is interested. Neither the NAMB nor HELPLINK consider the HELPLINK documents to be advice or counseling. Readers should not assume that HELPLINK documents are substitutes for professional counseling as provided by mental health professionals, legal counselors, or religious practitioners.

The primary purpose of HELPLINK documents is to illustrate that a real relationship with God in Jesus Christ is relevant to real issues of living. HELPLINK documents further illustrate how Bible guidelines contribute to living a full and meaningful life.
